In our second in the 2013 "wine column" series I talk with Gregor Mowatt, Director of Operations at Crown Isle Resort in Courtenay on Vancouver Island. Gregor's also someone who knows about – and loves – wine. We've talked to Gregor on several occasions about wine events at Crown Isle, but this is our first "wine column" interview. We taste and talk about 3 wines that are on the Spring 2013 wine list at at Crown Isle: Il Forro Prosecco from Italy, Oyster Bay Pinot Grigio from New Zealand, and an uncharacteristic Malbec from Bodega Norton out of Argentina.
